Don's Original
Rochester, NY
Mountain Mist Custard
Saranac Lake, NY
Don's Original opened in 1945. It features frozen custard, burgers, and "white hots" (pork hot dogs topped with chili sauce). Don's slogan is "Where Quality Predominates". There are now two other locations. The one shown here is the original. [map]

Mountain Mist Custard has been here since the 1950s. There was another location in Lake Placid, NY. [map]

Anderson's Custard
Kenmore, NY
Anderson's Custard was founded in New York City in 1946. This location in Kenmore was built in 1953. The building remained basically unchanged until around 2008 when an indoor dining room was added to the front. The top left photo is from around 2001; the others are from 2010. In addition to frozen custard, Anderson's is famous for its roast beef sandwiches ("Beef on Weck"). There are now seven locations in the Buffalo area. For more, see this website. [map]

Krekel's Kustard
Main St.
Decatur, IL
Krekel's Kustard
Wood St.
Decatur, IL
Krekel's Custard
Springfield, IL
Krekel's Kustard was established in 1949. The local chain has six locations and is perhaps best known for their hamburgers. Their Mount Zion location features a cow on the roof and a Chicken Mobile. These Decatur locations spell custard with a "K" while their website spells the word the traditional way. The Main St. stand features a pole sign that reads "Krekel's Dairy Maid". The sign on the roof has been replaced with a more modern one since this photo from 2009. [map]

The Wood St. stand might be the company's original location. The sign has been updated since this 2009 photo. [map]

The Springfield location has an unusual slanted roof and spells custard with a "C". For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Original Frozen Custard
Lafayette, IN
Original Frozen Custard started out in 1932 with an igloo shaped stand. That building is now gone. This building, at a different location in town, was built in 1949. For more, see this website. [map]

Frozen Custard Igloo
Lafayette, IN
The Frozen Custard Igloo is a modern stand. I don't know if there is any relationship with Original Frozen Custard (see above) but the Igloo's signs were obviously inspired by the older stand. [map]

Jarling's Custard Cup
Danville, IL
Jarling's Custard Cup
Champaign, IL
The Jarling's Custard Cup in Danville opened in 1949 when it was known as Potter's Custard Cup. The owner of this building was good friends with the owner of the Original Frozen Custard (see above) and was given the plans to build this stand. [map]

The Jarling's Custard Cup in Champaign opened in 1983. The building originally housed Marty K's Drive-in. There was another location in Danville, IL with a similar building. A third building in Danville looks like it was probably another location. This building in Decatur, IL looks similar but it was supposedly built in 1970 as a Spudnuts. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Massey's Frozen Custard
Carlisle, PA
Massey's Frozen Custard opened in 1949. The neon ice cream cone flashes on and off at night. [map]

Carl's
Fredericksburg, VA
Carl's opened in 1947 and its building and neon sign remain intact. Carl's uses 1940s Electro-Freeze ice cream machines to make 120 gallon batches of frozen custard. Hank's Frozen Custard in New Brighton, PA also uses these machines. Frozen custard uses more eggs than ice cream and is smoother and softer. Carl's offers vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. For more, see this website. [map]

Ted Drewe's Frozen Custard
St. Louis, MO
This Ted Drewe's Frozen Custard Route 66 location opened in 1941. There is another, smaller location in town. The company was founded in 1929 with a stand in Florida. Ted Drewe's is world-famous for its "concretes" (super thick milkshakes). For more, see these websites 1 and 2. [map]
